    Default Remapping a Vectra 2.8T Elite Auto

    hi,

    currently thinking of buying a 2006 Vectra Elite Auto (the 250bhp model). The question is remapping this engine to 285bhp be ok for the automatic gearbox? I'm thinking about getting a BSR PPC unit.

    I would have thought the torque increase may be too much for the auto to handle, perhaps some experts can help me!!

    cheers
    Jools

    BSR would not sell the unit if it wasn't able to cope m8.

    They do extensive testing on every model they tune and everything is within safe limits for what they can handle

    If you have any doubts then call Justin at BSR

    There's somebody who's had the BSR Stage 1 on a 2.8T auto - trying to think who it was.

    I would take it somewhere to get it done, a few 2.8`s have gone tits up remapping them, at least if you take it to 888 or thorney if things go wrong they will sort it for you ... As said there is a 300bhp elite hatch running around with no probs so far ..

    Are these BSR remaps you're referring to Tommy?

    Nope, I have just heard of 1 bsr remap on a 2.8 and it worked so I guess statistically it is 100% failsafe eds do a unit the same as the bsr unit but it gives the eds 300 map which would be a better option than bsr but I wouldn`t recommend either of these for the 2.8 as I know there are a few with faulty ecu`s (not maps! ) and I wouldn`t like someone to find this out on there driveway. I would recommend taking the car to someone who knows what they are doing.
